Re: moon roof glass

Sorry, like most everything else on our cars, the sunroof is unique to 3rd gens. You'll need to go custom if you want to go with carbon fiber.

Re: moon roof glass

AFAIK know the entire sunroof assembly bolts to the roof of the car. To replace it you should just have to drop the headliner and bolt in the new one. Shouldn't be too much work if you can find a replacement.

No, stop!!! You don't have to replace the entire sunroof mechanism to replace the glass. You don't need to remove the roof liner or even the sliding panel. You only need to remove two philips head screws, two trim pieces, and eight nuts and the glass will lift right out. The online manual shows how to do this.

But I don't think the OP is wanting to replace his glass with stock. He was asking if any other Honda models are compatible with our sunroof that have an aftermarket sunroof plug available.

Thanks for the clarification.
